I haven't been around much lately. I lost my darling husband Bob on March 13 after 4 weeks in three hospitals. Non of the doctors could ever determine what was causing his bleeding nor how to stop it.
We had been dating, going steady, pinned, engaged and then married for 48 years, since I was barely 14, so we really grew up together. I know I'll eventually get through this, but right now, don't see how. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

:heart: I'll be keeping you in my prayers, you have a long road ahead of you. I've watched my sister go through this (widowed after 43 years, January 4, 2009). Some of my observations...

She is very lonely, sad, and really struggles with a lot of confusion.

It will soon be 3 months and she really seemed to be having a few good hours of going on with life, it was minutes of sanity for a long time. I'm sure it will grow to days and weeks in time.

Don't give up on your interests, surround yourself with loved ones and friends, and don't be hard on yourself when you break down...48 years is a long time to have a best friend around every day...that's a horrible loss.

Let other people help you or do the things that you just cannot do, thank you cards, phone calls, death certificates, name changes, etc. Everyone wants to help, make a list - they don't offer if they don't mean it.

I say all this to say that I think I understand a little, but no one understands unless they've been through it. I'm so sorry. I wish you wisdom, peace and hope for your future.

48 years is a wonderful long time. My parents were together for 67 years- my father died September 15th and my mother in December 21st. Miss them terribly as you must miss your husband. My thoughts are with you and yours. Take care.

Thank you all so m uch for your kind words, sympathy and prayers. Thus far I haven;'t wanted to knit at all, but I'm sure that will change. Right now I'm just trying to sort out all the paperwork, etc. My DH, beiing a computer geek, was VERY organized. He also held onto everything, so there are many pages of stuff to look over, although it is in order.
I'll get through all of this with the help of friends, both those I've met personally and those I've met here.
Thank y ou again.:muah:

It will change...trust me. I took nearly a year off of knitting after my sister died last year. I found my way back to it though.

You are in my prayers.

I can only imagine how you must be feeling, as I have not lost my guy. You have spent a whole lifetime together. We met at age 18 and have been together for 50 years, married for 48. Please accept my sincerest sympathy.

Losnana, you are brave to come here and post. I hope you read our comments and if you want to talk about anything email me. I have been with my husband since 1974 and well, it's ... I can't say what I'm feeling right now but I hope you will have the strength go on and retain the love he gave to you. :heart:
